Ill Prepared

This is just a quick post to let you all know that, due to suffering from sinusitis since Thursday last week, having spent the majority of Saturday and Sunday in hospital with a poorly Caellum, and preparing for Caellum's fourth birthday yesterday, I haven't had the time to arrange a proper post for today. I … Continue reading Ill Prepared

Living the Dream Part 23 (Worthless)

My latest offering in this series isn’t a very positive one. The prospect of worthlessness is very much a fact I’m having to face far more than I wish I had to. In recent times, my depression appears to have deepened. It’s deepened to a level I really hoped it wouldn’t. I don’t mean to … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 23 (Worthless)

Thank F**k That’s Over…

This review of 2018 is more a way of me taking stock of everything than telling all my readers about it. It’s a way of trying to make sense of what has been a pretty chaotic time. Where to start? At the beginning I suppose. The first couple of months of 2018 went like most … Continue reading Thank F**k That’s Over…

Five Things I Hate About Christmas

The old saying goes that there’s nothing as certain as death and taxes. In the modern western world, I think we can add Christmas to that list too. Once you hit October it consumes pretty much everything going forward from there. Weeks and weeks of preparation for one day. As a child, I loved Christmas. … Continue reading Five Things I Hate About Christmas

Living the Dream Part 21 (Writing Is My Coping Technique)

I’m tying in this series to Mental Health Awareness Month as I feel the two are quite substantially linked. This series has always predominantly been about my writing and offering an update on how it’s going. In this edition, I’ll talk about why I write. The reason only became clear to me once I was … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 21 (Writing Is My Coping Technique)

Fatherhood–The Toddler and the Thirty-Four-Year-Old Boy

Almost two years ago I composed a rather popular piece on fatherhood. It had to be done. Although I don’t define myself simply as a parent, I do recognise that I’m viewed by most as being one ahead of anything else I might perceive myself to be. That’s fine. It makes perfect sense. Having just … Continue reading Fatherhood–The Toddler and the Thirty-Four-Year-Old Boy

Paul.E.Bailey’s World–Breaking Bad Review

WARNING: Contains mild spoilers! If there’s one thing I hate it’s people banging on incessantly about TV series that they think I should definitely watch. I’ve had at least one person try to shove every ‘boxset’ series spun out over the last ten-fifteen years down my throat. Lost, Prison Break, 24, Game of Thrones, The … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World–Breaking Bad Review

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Five Memorable Things That Happened In 2016

I love New Year. I love it in an ironic way. I love the cringeworthy end of year reviews people do as posts on Facebook and the like. I purposely avoided reading most such things here on WordPress as I often don’t buy into the whole ‘new year, new me’ time for self-reflection thing. I think … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Five Memorable Things That Happened In 2016

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Fatherhood

No gimmicks in the title of this post. I didn’t feel they were necessary. If you don’t know by now that I’m a dad to a twenty month old boy then you haven’t been reading my blog. So if this is news to you please stop reading this and start again from the beginning. Now! Go! … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Fatherhood
